Walmart is set to begin building out the number of U.S. stores that double as automated fulfillment centers as it responds to a huge uptick in demand for its curbside and delivery services and pushes even further into omnichannel retail.
Tom Ward, svp of customer product at Walmart U.S., said the retailer is “planning dozens of locations,” starting in Lewisville and Plano, Texas, as well as American Fork, Utah and Bentonville, Ark. Ward did not specify how many of the chain’s 4,800 stores will have these fulfillment centers in the near or long term.
